Problem installing KB974571

My computer keeps downloading and installing KB974571 and KB975467. A restart is required. But, after restarting, the two updates are waiting again to be downloaded and installed.
Googling these updates shows lots of headings saying not to download them, but doesn't say how to stop them appearing.

I could switch off Windows Update, but don't want to miss any other important updates.

Go to Control Panel\Security Center Turn off Automatic updates. If you look under start button you should see Windows Update Shortcut, use this to Update when you want, also choose custom when box pops up so you can download the ones you want. download all security Updates but the rest is up to you. I never download the Software Removal tool as it gave me problems a long time back, that I have not forgoten

Update them manually and when they show click on them one at a time and a box will open underneath it just tick the box to not show update again,.Do that with both and you should not be bothered with them again.
